Dolores Hulit
MANSFIELD: Dolores Hulit, 90, of Mansfield, passed away Sunday, October 17th, 2021 at Kingston of Ashland.

Born August 12, 1931 in New Philadelphia, Ohio, she was the daughter of Ralph and Gladys (Shaffer) Balliett.

Dolores was a graduate of Mansfield Senior High School and was a member of Berean Baptist Church.  She loved to travel and had many lovely friendships that she enjoyed maintaining by sharing dinners and other social gatherings with each of them.

While she insisted a job worth doing was to be done right, she was also mischievous and had an absolutely infectious laugh.  

Dolores had many jobs and interests over the years but if we are meant to summarize her life in these few short paragraphs; her passion, her legacy, her life’s work was her faith in God and her family.  Her faith in God never wavered and generations to come will carry forth the indelible mark she left on her family’s lives by being there.  Always. 

Dolores is survived by Son-in-law and Daughter Barry and Lynn Naugle; Daughter-in-law Sue (Mike) Almendinger; Son Donald Hulit; Granddaughter Jennifer (Mike Viars) Stacy; Granddaughter Stacy (Rick) Littleton; Granddaughter Angela (Jim) Jameson; Grandson Shaun (Tiffany) Hulit; Grandson Aaron Hulit; Granddaughter Emily (Dallas) Winrod; Grandson Logan Hulit; Sister-in-law Joan (David) Moore; Sister Patricia Lehman; Sister Carol (Bud) Ponsonby; Brother-in-law Kenneth (Patricia) Hulit; Sister-in-law June Hulit; 11 great-grandchildren; 4 great-great-grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews, special friends and family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Gladys Balliett; Fiancée Gaylord Allin; Husband Russell Hulit; Son David Hulit; Daughter-in-law Melinda Hulit; Brother James Balliett; Brothers-in-law Robert Crupper and Tom Lehman; Father-in-law Henry Hulit; Mother-in-law Ethel Hulit; Brother-in-law Ralph and his first wife Marilyn Hulit and second wife Mary Hulit; Sister-in-law Dorothy Wilging and her husband Eugene Wilging; Brother-in-law Harold Hulit; Sister-in-law Bonnie Hulit.
